Everyone hears about a celebrity’s addiction to drugs and where they have checked into a detox facility. Lindsay Lohan has made several visits to drug rehab after the courts required her to check into a facility to clean up her act. Some Hollywood types such as Robert Downey Jr. and John Belushi had an addiction to cocaine and heroin. Robert was able to overcome his addiction and move on to become one of the most favored actors on the screen today. Unfortunately, John was unable to commit to his treatment after several attempts and died of a drug overdose.
Not all celebrities treat their drug addiction seriously; many such as Amy Winehouse think detox is a waste of time. With money to burn and the ease of getting any drug they choose, some don’t want to quit. This leads to a downward spiral of poor job performance, health risks and puts a strain on relationships. Amy went on to sing a song about drug rehab, until she finally checked into a detox facility to get help.
Drug rehabilitation requires a serious commitment from the participant to change drug behaviors. Pain killers, cocaine and marijuana addictions are difficult to lose unless you totally immerse yourself into the program. The experienced staff and support team work hard with you to find ways to stop the addictive behavior. Forget the tabloids and the sensational Hollywood types that use detox centers like a spa vacation. Dedicating the time and focus to a drug program is necessary to lose the desire for drugs.
Ozzy Osbourne checked into a drug rehab program over twenty years ago and successfully overcame his addictions. His daughter Kelly recently went into rehab after becoming addicted to sedatives and pain medication. She left the program after losing her desire to use these drugs again and has gone on to become a happier individual.
